Thanks for the info. ladies ... not sure whether to plant this in the front gravel garden or a sunny part of the back ... decisions, decisions!

14 Feb, 2013

 

Split it.. and put some in both locations.

14 Feb, 2013

 

Yes of course ... thanks Tt! ... :o)

There's enough to probably divide it into three...
so now you just need to choose a third location... Lol.

Ha ha, well I like odd numbers, so perhaps 3 in the gravel garden would be the best option!

14 Feb, 2013

 

Yes... it will soon spread and you'll have more odd numbers ... 5,7,9,11 ... ;o)

We have it also, gets trampled on all the time, but still carries on regardless....

I have this too, good ground cover, and trails over a wall.

I have it growing in sunny and shady spots, a lovely little plant.

Lost this in the floods last year - I nipped a little dead bit into the corner of a pot and it has come away. Still tiny but still it's alive!

Seems quite a few Goyers have this little plant ... I like the idea of it trailing over a low wall (thanks for the idea, Cinders) ... lucky for me that I have a couple of walls needing adorning with plants!

Oooh thats a lovely plant Shirley, I haven't got one, am I the only GoYer not too have one ? have added to favs. need some ground cover, will look out for this one :-)
